Impact Soundworks Django Gypsy Jazz Guitar

From the team that created Impact Soundworks’ gorgeous bouzouki and oud comes Django: Gypsy Jazz Guitar, a virtual instrument dripping with character and authenticity! With this library, you can create the signature musical style popularized by Django Reinhardt, from the comfort of your DAW.

Featuring three instruments – acoustic lead, electric (DI) lead, and acoustic rhythm – Django is designed for stunning realism and playability. All the nuances and personality of gypsy jazz (a.k.a. gypsy swing, hot club jazz) have been captured for your enjoyment.

Far from being limited to just one style, you can use this library for everything from modern jazz and swing to blues, pop and beyond.
